There are 4 comments on How Safe Are the Ingredients in Your Sunscreen?

  1. All this information and much more had been discussed in Michael Savage book Diseases Without borders, published in 2016, I think. Book also has a lot of practical advice. Not trying to help sell any books here but simply pointing out that this is not new information.

  2. I am very happy with the Alba Botanica Line of screens, They are Broad Spectrum and free of the toxic ingredients listed in the article (as well as those that harm coral reefs – declared so on the tube!)
    Try the sensitive mineral sunscreen SPF 30. A little goes a long way…they also have a kids spray can of higher SPF. I am a skin cancer survivor and have found this brand to be very effective.
